Julia Donaldson Class

Reception (Mrs. Akers)


Mrs. Akers and Mrs. Turner are very excited to welcome you all to Julia Donaldson Reception


Julia Donaldson is our class author and our class name.

Which books do you like the best?




We are passionate about reading. We will change reading books once a week. We will be reading Rhino Readers, which are part of our Twinkl phonics scheme. Please can you record what and how your child has read in their reading record at least 3 times a week. 5 (or more) entries will mean that tokens will be award to your child for their house. Please can your child bring their reading book and reading record to school every day.


Children need to bring in their PE kit into school on Thursdays, as the children will be getting changed into them as part of our curriculum. Thursday is indoor PE, so they will need to wear shorts and a white t shirt, with their school jumper or plain navy hoodie, joggers or leggings and trainers.  Please can you label all your child's clothing.


It is going to be a busy first half term full of lots of new learning.  Our topic will be ‘Getting to know me’. 


If you need to contact me, please email me.


I will respond to emails between 8 am and 5.30 pm Monday to Friday.
